I am an experienced and qualified music teacher and offer piano and violin lessons in the Wellington suburb of Crofton Downs.
I have a BMus and Dip Tch from Canterbury University and an FTCL diploma from Trinity College. I have worked as a piano and violin teacher in the private studio and also as a classroom music teacher in primary and secondary schools.
In addition to my teaching experience, I have played with Orchestra Wellington, the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra, and the Wellington Chamber Orchestra. I also perform with professional chamber music groups for concerts and events such as weddings and other functions.
I am passionate about encouraging students to improve their musical skills and to gain a greater knowledge and appreciation of music.
My piano and violin lessons are best suited for students aged seven years and older. Beginners are welcome and I to teach up to an advanced level.
My overall teaching aim is to encourage students to gain a life-long love of playing and appreciating music. I include both technique and musicianship skills in each lesson and work with my students to ensure that they reach a high level of musical achievement and performance.
I use a music-reading approach to learning, incorporating this into technique and repertoire so that students can eventually become independent performers, able to approach music with the security and the confidence of knowing they are able to understand and interpret new pieces for themselves.
I am able to prepare students for music exams when required and can also offer help and guidance for students working towards NCEA music.
My teaching approach is classical however I am also happy to explore popular styles as required and aim to have students learn a varied program of contrasting music that best suits their interest and needs.
Have fun learning!
Become passionate about playing!
Grow musical independence!
